Hi, I have been asked to add a new quick filter to be able to filter on any assignee on a given project. I typed assignee = "assignee" but it didn't work. HELP!! I don't really know JQL. Thanks!!

You could use the Issue Search instead of the board and have your Project Lead select the assignees there. It might be more effective than trying to use quick filters.

You could also use swimlanes on your board to show the issues by assignee as an alternative. But that would only make sense if you aren't using swimlanes for a different purpose.

You should use the assignee's name. e.g. assignee = "Audra Bonacki" (use the naming of the users in your JIRA).

I hope you don't have too many users in your project or you will need a lot of filters.

Note that the default quick filter Only my issues is already a generic one that shows each logged in user his/her own issues: assignee = currentUser()

Hi, yes we have quite a few users, there's no way to consolidate them? The Project lead wants to be able to sort by assignee, not just himself.

Hi Walter, thank you for that suggestion. It may be most prudent because we have 7 users working the project.

Hi Audra,

You may be able to do something like this to get the issues that are not unassigned from a particular project and then order them by assignee in ascending or descending order:

project = "WTBRGR" and assignee != null order by assignee asc
